“Turning shaft one after the flame spray welding buildup. Using my trusty @micro100 brazed on tooling for both roughing and finishing. I shoot for .001-.0015 over the maximum tolerance then get to the final finish using emery paper. Using this type of carbide tooling allows me to easily hand grind and hone a sharp cutting edge providing less tool pressure than a traditional insert tool.”
Micro 100 fully stocks a wide selection of Brazed Forming Tools, all ground from solid carbide with zinc coated steel shanks for durability and corrosion resistance. Featured in this video is an AR Style Brazed Forming tool, which is designed for right hand turning and facing in lathe applications. It’s ground in the USA with a side rake to provide a positive cutting action and better chip evacuation.
